    Probably not.

    But what the hell.

    If you build it, he will come.

    He being Ross P., of course.

    Re: SEZ CycloneFanatic Kickstarter?

    What are you hoping to raise? The SEZ would cost millions of dollars, even if we raised $100,000 and gave it to the athletic department, it wouldn't be enough to get the idea off the ground.

    The best thing you can do is keep buying tickets, and encouraging your friends and family to do the same. Because Pollard will enclose the SEZ if and only if we continue to sell out Jack Trice. If we go 3 more years with a packed stadium for every game, coinciding with an increase in program success? I bet we'll see it. If we go back to having 30-40k for games that we look like we might lose, there's no reason to add the additional seating.

    The only other way is if some rich alum dies and leaves his estate toward the completion of the SEZ.

    Besides, we really don't want to have to pull a Baylor and stretch a tarp over a large block of seating because we can't fit people in the seats. I want it to happen, but not before it should--nothing looks worse than an empty stadium.

    If we did a bake sale in Iowa City with "special" brownies, we could probably make enough in a weekend...

    Sell runzas at Iowa State tailgates. Should have enough money to build SEZ after one week, but we will probably run out of sangwhiches. Lets shoot for two weeks.

    lol, this is a terrible idea. Imagine other teams getting a hold of that link to make fun of us. Especially as it grows to $100 after a month.

    I think the real money maker of the operation would be charging people 5 dollars a pop for the use of a port a potty after eating the aforementioned Runzas. They'd have to pay because when the bottom on the runzas hit (and they always hit) you would have no time to get to a free bathroom.

    Are you implying there's a reason they're called the Runz-as?
